Owning a backyard is not enough — there always needs to be something that makes it stand out more. Some people decide for complicated floral arrangements or endless rows of trees and bushes, while others prefer next to nothing. Whatever you like, it’s a fact that your backyard needs some care and possibly a full makeover. If you don’t know what to do, and there is plenty of space around, we suggest a gazebo. Aside from looking beautiful, a gazebo can also be used as a yard focal point which means that, if you do it right, it’ll automatically attract the attention of your guests any time of year. So, here are some tips on turning your gazebo into a cozy and elegant oasis:

Add some hanging potted plants

There’s nothing more enjoyable than sitting on your gazebo on a warm spring evening and smelling the surrounding flowers while sipping some cold ice tea. The quickest way to decorate your gazebo is to add hanging potted plants. You can play with various colours and sizes, so feel free to mix different types of flowers until you find the combination that you like. Having potted plants around can make your gazebo look more homely and elegant especially during the spring and summer. If you prefer other floral arrangements, you can add regular flower pots or even rose bushes. 

Paint your gazebo white

A white gazebo will bring a dash of elegance and sophistication to your backyard, but also, make it look bigger. White can add more light into your gazebo especially when it’s less sunny outside, but you still want to spend some time in your backyard. If you want to spruce it up a bit, you can add matching white chairs and a table so you’ll have a place to sit and hang out with your friends. For those who want some privacy, getting a white breezy curtain will protect your gazebo from rain and make you feel cozy and a bit isolated whenever you need some privacy.

Make your gazebo a winter sanctuary

Who says gazebo should only be used during the warm months? There are many gazebo covers and even though they don’t look much elegant, they can still be used if you don’t have anything else. The best option would be to insulate your gazebo with sliding glass walls, but sometimes even that’s not enough. However, there are ways to make your gazebo feel warm even if it’s cold outside: get a fire feature that will keep you safe from cold even in lower temperatures. You can then snuggle in your armchair, wrapped in your fave blanket with a cup of tea or a glass of mulled wine.

Get some Chinese lanterns for an ultimate autumn feel

Autumn is the time when everything becomes red, yellow, brown and orange, so adding Chinese lanterns that are traditionally autumn-colored is a perfect decor choice. To create an ultimate romantic autumn feel, hang lanterns with different length string, so they’ll look more interesting and unique. If you feel extra crafty, you can create your own lanterns. Besides lanterns, you can also add various fall flowers like garlands, dahlias or orange gerberas. For those who really love autumn, you can also add fall leaves to make your gazebo look ready for the cozy autumn afternoons.

In conclusion, turning your gazebo into a focal point shouldn’t be a one-time project since your gazebo could be redecorated and redesigned for each season, which will only make your time there more memorable and fun. For example, adding a lot of greenery can make it look more stylish and less stripped. Your main design goal should be making your gazebo attention-grabbing and comfortable at the same time.

When it comes to Airbnb rentals, there is no shortage of them. With so many different and amazing options, choosing where to stay can make travelers feel like they’ve just entered a candy store. And in this candy store, you want your cake to stand out. So, how do you do that? Of course, a lot of it depends on décor, as in this case, people will judge a book by its cover. So, if you want your Airbnb to be the most eye-catching one, here are a few design trends that could raise the value of your Airbnb and attract more guests. 

Think about your audience

Now, let’s be real – if your Airbnb is not overlooking some breathtaking scenery or if it’s not close to the important points of interest, you’re going to need to put in some effort. For starters, think about the kind of audience your city is most likely to attract. For example, if it’s mainly famous for festivals and nightlife, you probably want to make your place more Instagram-worthy. On the other hand, if most of your guests happen to be families, then you want to provide them with a comfortable and children-friendly atmosphere. In short, every aspect of your property’s design depends on the effect you want to achieve, and thus, on the audience you want to attract.

 

 

Don’t go wild with the base

Neutral colours might sound boring at first, but they are the safest choice simply because nobody dislikes them. Of course, this doesn’t mean you should paint everything in white and cream and leave it at that. You should spice things up with more vibrant colours – but they should be introduced through smaller details like artwork, plants, pillows, rugs, etc. This way, you’re less likely to scare off any more conservative types, and you might even impress a few people with your ability to combine different colours and create something that is everything but boring. 

What’s under your feet matters

Now, many Airbnb hosts leave their floors bare simply because it’s easier to clean them that way. Although that might be more practical, it’s definitely not more visually appealing nor comfortable. So, don’t be afraid of adding a fashionable jute rug to your Airbnb. Jute rugs are very sturdy, and they are eco-friendly, which means that your property will also appeal to the eco-conscious audience. Finally, they also come in many different sizes and colours, so they can upgrade your neutral base perfectly. 

Don’t forget about storage

This might seem like a no-brainer, but many hosts focus so much on minimalism and décor that they completely forget about storage. After all, you will have people coming from another country – they will have lots of stuff with them, and they don’t want to look for a place to hang their jacket or put their stuff. There’s nothing wrong about minimalism if that’s what you’re aiming for, but still, that’s not an excuse to be lazy. Therefore, add some hooks to the wall, build in some cupboards, and put a rack for shoes near the entrance door. Don’t make your guests frustrated the first minute they enter. 

Make it smell nice

Last but not least, interior design is not all about visual appeal. True, when browsing the website, the appearance of your Airbnb will matter the most. However, keep in mind that people often travel to the same city more than once, especially if there is a certain annual event that they want to attend. So, you don’t want to just attract new guests, but you also want to bring back the old ones. And this is where your other senses come into play – make your Airbnb smell nice. It’s bound to leave a good first impression and give you a few extra points in the reviews. Just make sure not to pick any overwhelming scent so you don’t turn off guests with allergies. 

Being an Airbnb host is a competitive business that does require a lot of dedication in order to stay in the game. Raising the value of your property depends a lot on how you can make your guests feel – there’s a reason why they chose an Airbnb instead of a hotel. So, make them feel at home, and they’ll be more than willing to show appreciation for your effort.

Do you consider yourself an eco-friendly person? We should all be at least to some extent, meaning we should all take care of the environment any way we can. There are many processes that enable us to do so, and one of the things that are good for the environment are definitely LED lights. Are you familiar with all their benefits? They sure have a lot, yet here you can read about some of them. Hopefully, you will like it enough to consider using LED lights yourself.

 

This energy efficient lighting is actually cheaper in the long run

Compared to the standard lighting, LED lights are more expensive. Yet, when you think about how energy efficient they are – it is worth all the extra money. Yes, you do pay for it more at first, but it pays off eventually, so in a way, you pay less because the investment is smart.

Did you know that traditional lights use up only 20% of the electricity? Everything else is transformed into heat. LED light use up to 90%. You will be able to save up your money in the long run. And what do you get? This lighting works with the electroluminescence process. This means that the bulbs need less energy. You get a lot of light with a small amount of energy exploited. It is a good bargain, don’t you think?

 

Looking good and lasting longer are sure their advantages!

They are not just practical, but they also look good when we are talking about both bigger and smaller spaces. This is because they are small in size, and this is what also makes them look more elegant than something else. They are quite flexible because they can fit anywhere. And what is even better, with these lights you can direct your light the way you want it. If we are talking about standard lights, this is not possible because their light is emitted in every direction.

Moreover, the fact they last longer should really win you over. Actually, they are the most long-lasting, having an ability to last to 50,000 hours. Fluorescent bulbs only last for 15 000 hours. There is a huge difference between these two, and you see which one is better. Maybe you will be shocked to find out that before they stop working completely, they can actually get to the impressive 100 000 hours.

There is nothing toxic about them

Every last compound of these lights is ecologically friendly and you do not have to worry about them containing something that is toxic. Unlike in them, mercury and other materials that are hazardous are found in fluorescent lights. When it comes to LED lights, they have a lovely virtue of being 100% recyclable and you can actually minimize them up to a third of your carbon footprint.

They are quite resistant

These lights are resistant to that extent it is impressive. They can easily deal with any kind of outward threats, unlike other types of lighting. They are made that way, meaning their fixtures are shock resistant, to begin with. They are more firmly built, so any vibrations that occur are nothing to them. It is also worth mentioning that they do not break down so quickly.

LED lights are made in such a way that we should all wish to have them at our homes and workplaces. They have so many great characteristics and benefits, like being eco-friendly and more lasting than other types of lights. If you decide to use them yourself, you will have no regrets and you will be happy to know you are doing something nice for the environment.

Living Coral has been pronounced the color of the year by the Pantone Color Institute, and it’s been described as “animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge.” However, despite its popularity, its uniqueness can sometimes make it a bit difficult to incorporate in the home décor. With that in mind, here are a few tips that should help you freshen up your interior by making this color a part of it.

coral wall

Paint the walls

Perhaps the first thing that comes to mind when remodeling is painting the walls. Of course, you can paint the whole room in this color, or you can choose just a single wall and turn it into a focal point. Either way, this shade would make any room look fresh and youthful, which would leave a great first impression on your guests when they come for a visit. Living Coral is also a color that is easily matched with other colors and patterns, so don’t hesitate to spice things up a bit with wall decals, wallpapers, or some other wall decorations.

coral rug

Add some textiles

Throws, pillows, curtains, carpets, and other textiles are all things that bring your home to life and make it cozier. Curtains in this color, for example, would emphasize the natural light coming through them, while carpets and mats would make the whole area seem brighter. Plus, such a carpet would go great with any type of flooring, regardless of whether we are talking about wood, tiles, or something else. The only downfall is that it can get dirty rather easily, so if you choose to add it to your living room, opt for materials that can withstand high traffic, like wool or cotton. Anyway, it’s a great way to add some character to your home, no matter which interior style you prefer.

coral lamp

Small decorations matter

This might be the safest way to incorporate Living Coral, especially if you don’t want to overwhelm the space with it. After all, small things can often make a big difference. So, get some subtler accessories, like planters, picture frames, or mirror frames, and paint them in this color. You can also combine Living Coral with white, as they look great together. Living Coral also goes well with stone-like textures, so it should look great on your fireplace or kitchen counters. Or, if you’ve chosen your accent wall, you can draw even more attention to it with the mentioned frames.

coral sofa

Pick your furniture

Now, this might seem like a bold move, but it can also be just the thing you need to upgrade the look of your home. For instance, a nice sofa in this color would look amazing on a white carpet. Just keep in mind that such a sofa can be a bit more difficult to maintain, so it might not be the best choice if you have furry pets. You can opt for a smaller piece of furniture instead, like a stylish armchair. Regardless of what you pick, rest assured that it would take the whole appearance of your interior to the next level.

If you are into fashion and you want your home to be up to date, introducing this color into your home décor might be just the thing it needs to look as good as new. It would brighten it up, and add some character to it. Plus, being surrounded by this unique color it would make you feel much more energetic and comfortable. So, consider the listed tips, apply them to your home, and it’s bound to look better than ever before.

Many of us started our independent lives in a studio apartment—a small, affordable and cozy enough space to make us feel safe and welcome. However, even though studio apartments are home to some of the best memories, these memories are often spiced up with constant bumping into things, removing clutter and tidying up your tiny space. Luckily, there are a few practical solutions to your studio apartment layout that will help you open up your space and enjoy your little piece of heaven.

Think small

When you’re buying new furniture or home décor, keep in mind the fact that standard pieces won’t fit your tiny space. So, bring a measuring tape with you when shopping and think in terms of centimeters! Even though a standard-size desk might look more natural in the store, it will definitely feel out-of-place in your little apartment. Or, if you’re considering to invest in a standard sofa, opt for a settee instead which will be a much better fit for your square footage while providing the same amount of comfort and seating (or sleeping) space.
multipurpose furniture

Invest in multipurpose furniture

While we’re on the subject of sofas, it’s really important to keep in mind the fact that your studio apartment seating probably doubles as your bed. That’s why you might want to invest in multipurpose furniture, which offers all the comfort necessary for lounging during the day, sleeping during the night as well as some sort of extra storage space under the cushions. Additionally, you can find various extendable dining tables that can also serve as storage or additional food prep area. Pair your table with some collapsible chairs and voila! You have plenty of seating and some extra elbow space when you’re having a party and want people to mingle.  

 

Opt for smart shelving

Instead of the bulky display cabinets, it’s much better to use vertical and horizontal shelves that you can mount on the wall. This will leave plenty of free space on the floors of your studio apartment and ensure easier maneuvering through your home. According to Feng Shui, having the natural flow of energy is very important for your wellbeing, but even if you don’t care about this ancient belief, you have to admit that it’s very annoying having to hop over and avoid all sorts of hurdles in your apartment. Plus, if you opt for contemporary modular shelves, you can always change the look of your storage and allow your space to adapt to your needs. These are also less expensive than traditional or built-in storage, so you’ll get to direct your money elsewhere.
neutral wall

Paint your walls neutral

The color of your walls is very important for the visual impression of your space. That’s why many interior designers recommend painting small spaces with bright yet neutral colors (of course, this advice is only useful if you own the apartment and can make bigger changes). If you find neutrals too bland and sterile, you can always add a few pops of color with decorative pillows, interesting throw blankets, different textures and patterns. Neutral colors are also very handy because they fit in with almost any interior style and decor. For instance, if you want to add some timeless style to your space, you can invest in all sorts of rugs to define the space and balance the warmth in your studio apartment and they will fit perfectly with your wall color.

While these studio apartment decoration tips are not written in stone, they worked for many people. However, remember that you’re the one living in your apartment, so it’s your opinion and tastes that count the most. So, don’t be afraid to show off your personality though decoration—it’s the only way you’ll ever feel comfy and safe in your little home.

It is common for all fashion trends to come and go, but there will always be certain elements that never fade and go out of style. If you’ve been thinking of redecorating your home lately, consider giving your home a timeless look, something that will stand the test of time but continue to radiate elegance, beauty and serenity in the years to come.

A timeless décor can serve as a perfect background for displaying all the eclectic pieces that you love and here is how you can achieve that in grand style.

Go neutral with colour

It can look truly amazing to play with wall colour or fancy wallpaper, but you can’t really tell how long those patterns and shades will stay pleasing to the eye. Neutral colours never go out of style and remain as constant communicators of freshness and cleanliness. For a timeless and elegant look, stick to neutrals and solids and achieve beauty and balance with flashy accessories.

One trap that many eager homeowners fall into is buying fundamental furniture pieces in a trendy colour of the year. Rather go with colours and patterns that will survive passing trends and add layers with decorative pieces such as lamps, art, throws, pillows, bedding, rugs and tableware.

Be detailed, but don’t overcrowd

As the saying goes – the devil is in the detail –give some extra consideration to choosing those details carefully. Pay attention to lighting and elements that can bounce off light, such as gilded mirrors. They are very classic in style and help balance the natural light.

Use scented candles to uplift the space and create an atmosphere of warmth and harmony. Besides colour, fragrances are also very therapeutic and picking different scents such as lavender, passionfruit, jasmine, lemongrass or vanilla, can help in soothing the nerves and improving mood. Moreover, if you arrange them tastefully in elegant glass containers on a beautiful vintage tray, you’ll have a gorgeous decorative piece to go with the style of your home.

Your only concern should be not to overdo it. Timeless look is all about balance, so less is actually more. Be selective in your choice of decorations, colours and furniture and let the overall look show off each piece.

Mix the old with the new

Timeless décor typically blends old with new and it’s one of the best ways to create interest and add beauty to your space. By mixing pieces from different eras and painting them into a fresh, modern shade, or upholstering a classic piece of furniture into a fabric of intricate pattern, you can create a unique blend and give your own stamp to the design.

Carefully balanced with the contemporary, old, vintage pieces such as armchairs, mirrors, chandeliers and side tables can give any room a lot of charm and appeal.

Illumination is essential

Lighting is an extremely important element of any home and a great ally in designing. It doesn’t only light up the space, but it has the capacity to make a room seem bigger, brighter and more inviting. You can use it cleverly to your advantage and highlight your favourite furniture pieces or artwork. By using light to showcase your minimalist design, you move the focus form the light fixture itself and make a statement of the whole space.

Tone down your furniture

Try to stay away from big, chunky furniture pieces and rather go with toned down, petite elements, as they can have a much more powerful effect in big rooms. Also, pay attention to the practical aspect as well as aesthetical. Smaller and moveable items of furniture won’t give the room a heavy, old-fashioned vibe and will allow you to be more flexible when it comes to the layout. So when you get weary of one set up, you can easily rearrange the furniture and have a fresh new look without spending a dime.

Display your favourite photos

Family photos always give the space a note of warmth and love, but be careful not to go too eclectic by mixing too many textures, colours and shapes of frames. A classic, timeless look is easily achieved with monochromatic or black and white scheme. Choose a wall and make it your gallery that reflects your family’s unique personality.

Finding the best design for your home that will represents your personality and taste is never an easy task. It can also be quitter challenging to find a timeless look that will make you comfortable and be aesthetically pleasing. Hopefully, by incorporating some basic features listed here, you’ll be able to style your home in a way that will stand the test of time.

One would think shopping for home design enthusiasts is a mission impossible. It goes hand in hand with buying someone a perfume. It’s exhausting and incredibly difficult and the odds of the person liking it are not really on your side. Another problem is not even knowing where to start. Home décor is such a vast universe. How on Earth should we know where to look? Despite the pain this type of shopping brings, when you imagine the look on your friend’s face after getting them the best home décor gift there is, you’ll realize it’s all worth it. So, let’s get to it and see how to narrow it down and crack the code for getting the perfect present.

Minimalism

Contrary to popular opinion, minimalism enthusiasts actually like getting home décor presents. However, they may be the most difficult target audience as any gift you get that they already have or dislike, is considered clutter. That’s why you should tread carefully when it comes to buying gifts. However, if you know your friend’s inventory stats, a nice set of trays or cups and a teapot seem like a good idea. Scented candles goodie bags can also bring your friend joy. You can even pair coasters and candle holders. Regardless, your main guidelines are to stick to neutral colors and plain designs.

Antique lover

Unfortunately, given the delicacy of the situation, one cannot exactly categorize antiques here due to the fact that the availability of items depends on luck and circumstances. This is where you simply need to go and search until an item “speaks to you”. It is best if you go live as online shopping won’t give you the real idea or show you the true charm of the items. For instance, my mom wanted to have this special old book. It was about history of mathematics and not many copies were printed so it was impossible to buy it in any bookstore. However, one day, her friend found it in an antique store accidentally and bought it for her. She was ecstatic. So, go and try your luck at various antique stores and flea markets and you might just find the perfect gift.

Natural types

People find it quite easy to shop for this group. When in doubt, buy a plant. You can never go wrong with buying a beautiful plant in a nice naturally designed pot. Success is one-hundred-percent guaranteed. However, if you want to be a bit more creative, there are some lovely cooking sets that are nature-themed with branches for holders. There are also amazing curtain designs and drapes including scenery, animal prints and many more nature-inspired patterns. You could even consider a DIY of cacti in a glass terrarium. It will be a great touch in your friend’s home and it also has a personal note.

Bohemian rhapsody

Bohemians have that wonderful sense of romance. Your friend probably likes to cuddle up into a blanket and enjoy a good book and a glass of wine on a rainy afternoon. In that respect, you should consider getting them a soft warm plushy blanket that also has an interesting design. This would make any bohemian happy. Another gift idea would be pillows or even a plush toy that fits their living room. It’s important that the materials are natural and they feel good against the skin.

Hopefully, this classification gave you some idea on where to start and what to look for when getting home décor gifts for your friends. It will take you some time and effort, but once you see how happy you made them, you will have zero regrets.

Having your own private library is every avid reader’s dream. As it often happens, one book turns into ten, which turn into 100, and before you know it, you have your own private collection. However, it’s not enough to just have it – you should also show it. With that in mind, here are a few ideas for showcasing your book collection.

Organize books like art

If you happen to be both an artist and a bookworm, think about organizing your book collection like a piece of art. You can do this by using wall-mounted ledges and a bit of imagination. For example, you can organize your books by their cover color and create a unique rainbow. Or, you can organize your books in a way that would match your home décor. Either way, make use of colorful book covers and turn your books into art.

Hide the shelves

A great idea when it comes to book-related home décor is installing some hidden floating shelves. It is bound to draw the attention of your guests, since it’s so unexpected but still very practical. Moreover, such shelves fit perfectly with any minimalistic style. Plus, if you combine them with the first suggestion, you could really increase the elegance factor of your home.

Create a reading nook

Every home has that one corner that isn’t really used for anything, so we usually put a big potted plant in it and call it a day. However, if you have a book collection, you can put that corner to good use. For example, you can create a nice reading nook with a comfy chair, a couple of floating shelves, or maybe a few hand-made storage items.

Add some wall baskets

If you’re looking for something a bit more chic that would still not take up any floor space, consider using wall-mounted baskets. They offer you a lot of storage room, and they are very versatile, which means that you can match them with any style. The same goes for magazine holders, and they can be a great addition to your new reading corner as well.

Merge your books and bed

Most people usually read before going to bed, so why not make that easier and combine your books with your bed? For instance, you can get a nice short bookcase and place it at the end of your bed. It would add to the sense of style since it wouldn’t be a typical way to showcase your books. Plus, it would allow you to keep all your books near, so when you’re done with one, you can easily switch to another.

Turn them around

This might seem impractical at first, but it’s definitely one way to draw attention to your books. If you turn your books around and stack them so that you can only see the edges of the covers, you’d achieve quite a memorable look. Plus, you can always arrange them alphabetically so you can still easily find what you’re looking for.

Build a library

Finally, if you happen to have a small room in your home that you don’t really use for anything, turn it into your own personal library. You could use different storage options for a more artistic and stylish look. Additionally, you could introduce a nice rug and make the room feel cozier. Besides the books, you could also add comfortable seating options with pillows and throws. This would make your library a perfect place for some evening relaxation.

There’s so much we can gain from reading books, it’s safe to say that the time spent reading is never wasted. So, if you love books and you feel like you can never have too many of them, you should definitely show them. Therefore, consider the above-listed suggestions, and don’t hesitate to apply those that suit your home the most.

Boy, teenagers can be tough to please. In fact, as a parent trying to preserve peace in the household while raising a couple of teens, you’re in for a rough ride. However, by providing your growing teens a sacred space where they can feel safe, productive, and free to just be themselves, you can help nurture a loving relationship and prevent any quarrels that may arise. With that in mind, here are ten teen bedroom ideas your kids are bound to love.

Encourage self-expression

More than anyone else, a teen needs to be able to express their uniqueness, so it’s a good idea to involve them into the process before springing for a floral wall pattern they’re going to hate. Or will they? You won’t know if you don’t ask.

Design a multi-purpose setting

This is not just a place where they should sleep and pretend to study, this is a place where they’ll spend their time socializing with friends, listening to music while thinking about how everyone else’s musical taste sucks, and just doing the things they love most. For this reason, the room not only needs to serve an aesthetic, but a functional purpose as well.

Introduce a statement wall

Speaking of aesthetics, you can bet that your teen will try to decorate an entire wall in their favorite art, or huge posters of their favorite actors, musicians, and, in rare cases, Neil deGrasse Tyson. Whatever the case may be, why not take the concept a step further by creating a statement wall boasting a colorful mural of their favorite celebrity? It sure beats a poster and it will make the room that much cooler!

How about a video game room?

Gaming has become an important part of the modern lifestyle, and there is no reason why your teen shouldn’t indulge every once in a while. Designing a gaming room can be a fun and rewarding project, so make sure your kid is a part of the entire process.

Add a chalkboard wall

You know what complements a great study area? A chalkboard wall where they can put they thoughts, tasks, and even write motivational quotes that will inspire them to study, yes, but also push towards achieving their long-term goals. Side note: the wall doesn’t have to be black, you know.

Build an intimate reading nook

Reading nooks are cool, and not enough teen rooms nowadays have one. Sure, the bed could serve the same purpose, but having a purpose-built space for reading is bound to get them away from their smartphone screes and transform them into lifelong learners.

Make storage easy to use

For some reason, teens hate storage space. How else do you explain all those clothes lying about everywhere, or that one lonely chair in the corner covered completely in dirty laundry? The best thing you can do is to provide the room with plenty of smart storage your kids will actually use.

Create a comfy, sociable space

Again, for reasons unknown, teens love sitting and lying anywhere but the areas designated for these activities. For this reason, you need to think outside of the box and provide plenty of sitting room they, and their friends will actually use. A floor seating area with pillows and bean bags usually does the trick.

Build a truly inspiring study area

Some teens love to study, but most of them don’t even know where they left their books when the school year began. To make your kid actually want to pick up a book and learn something, numerous factors will come into consideration, of which their surroundings will plat a vital role. The space needs to be conducive to productivity, so consider getting the right desk, chair, and equipping the area with all the essentials for a productive study session.

Let them choose their ideal color palette

Last but not least, teens tend to be very passionate about their likes and dislikes, and one of the biggest mistakes you can make is assuming that you know exactly what will appeal to their sense of aesthetics. Choosing colors for the room is a tricky task, and it would be a wise decision to create the color scheme with their help – something they will be able to enjoy completely. And hey, if they want a completely black theme, let them have it, it’s their room.

 

Designing a bedroom for a teenager is definitely not an easy task, especially if you think that you don’t have to include them into the process. However, by following these design tips, you will have no problem creating a safe and enjoyable space your teen is bound to love.
